Dictionary.com defines “scarcity” as: insufficiency or shortness of supply.
For the vast majority of my life I have operated under the scarcity mentality.
There’s not enough money to go around.
Ideas can only be used once and only by one person.
There are only so many “good” jobs out there.
Over the last six to nine months I have learned that if you operate from the stand point of scarcity you are GREATLY limiting your potential.
You won’t give freely of or invest your money because you’ll never have enough.
You won’t share your ideas with others because someone else might steal them.
And if you don’t get that one “good” job then you’re out of luck because there’s no other “good” options out there.
The alternative to the scarcity mentality is the abundance mentality.
Dictionary.com defines “abundance” as: an extremely plentiful or over sufficient quantity or supply.
With the abundance mentality you see that there is more than enough for everybody.
So instead of never having enough money, you constantly see ways to give it away or invest it. Because more money is just around the corner.
Instead of hording your ideas, you share them. Because you realize that if you have one idea and I have one idea, and we share our ideas with each other, we then both walk away with two ideas.
And you realize that there are countless “good” jobs out there for you. And if you don’t see the exact job you’re looking for, you take the steps required to MAKE that perfect job or business for yourself.
I believe that when you finally start seeing the world through the eyes of abundance instead of through the eyes of scarcity you will begin to realize the COUNTLESS opportunities that lie before you.
